On the 10th of August the third issue of “Hens Tae Watch Oot Fur” will be available at Pride Glasgow. “Hens Tae Watch Oot Fur” is a Glasgow based, queer feminist zine project run by Glasgow Women’s Library in collaboration with LGBT Youth Scotland. It was originally set up to give young LGBTQ women a voice, to connect with the past and to record the lives and thoughts of young queer feminist women today.
The themes for issue three are pride and activism to match the Badges of Honour project which is going on just now at the Glasgow Women’s Library. The library’s project aims to show women wearing badges, showing their activism,and how they have changed the world. There has been a number of interviews carried out in the Badges of Honour project and the creators of the zine wanted to try and incorporate this into issue three. Therefore interviews asking people about their activism and experiences at pride events will be featured in the zine.
Another feature of issue three is badges. Alongside your copy of the zine you can also get specially made “Hens Tae Watch Oot Fur” badges. Badges are a fantastic way to show your pride for the things you’re passionate about to the world and look fantastic at the same time. “Hens Tae Watch Oot Fur” is trying to encourage people to be out and proud about the different types of activism they are involved in and causes they feel strongly about.
